Primarily a Trend Trader, I looking to hop on board existing trends on pullbacks, long or short. I will occasionally buy breakouts or pullbacks after breakouts as well. There are other setups I may trade but they occur less frequently and I will cover those as they arise. The main methodology is to swing trade half of my position for profits while trying to hold the second half of the position for intermediate to longer term gains. I feel this gives me the best of both worlds-locking in shorter term profits while still lending me the opportunity for those occasional homeruns that really make the difference in your returns. I have also been able to take what I have learned over the years and effectively implement it into the trading of stock options as well.
